Bodies are exchanged, feelings are exchanged. The emotions that did not know that they were there reveal themselves, connecting their souls to find what they have wanted for a long time. Two romantic comedy works with their characters, which seek meaning in their lives. In a supernatural way they show the beauty of not keeping to themselves what they want and not forgetting the most essential, which gives meaning to everything.
Body swapping? Check. Romance? Check. Humor? Ya bet! While Kokoro Connect tends to be a little heavier on the drama side, both shows use body-swapping as a key plot device that is used in a light-hearted and humorous way. If you have spare time, be sure to check out both!
Both series have the same premise where main characters switch bodies among themselves. Your name's amazing soundtrack and beautiful art combined create a warm but sometimes even an emotional atmosphere whereas Kokoro Connect's characters' strong friendship makes you think that's what a group of friends you'd want to belong in.
Kokoro Connect and Kimi no Na Wa. both features body swapping. It's not just that. They're both really deep and touches your heart.
If you watch Kimi no Na Wa. after watching Kokoro Conenct, you will feel all the emotion and epicness. You'll feel the wideness and the beauty of the world as it is, and you will definitely be touched. If you watch it the otherway around, you'll realize Kokoro Connect handles all the emotion and problem inside one ground, which is school. Problems are dealt, mistakes are made, and you just have to sympathize for them.
Kokoro Connect and Kimi no Na Wa are both equally good to watch, but I recommend watching Kokoro Connect first, because while Kimi no Na Wa. handles things large far away, twisting and turning time, Kokoro Connect handles things simply in ordinary life.. read more
The characters in both animes swap bodies, causing roller coasters of unexpected emotions and experiences which help the characters bond and become closer than they already are. I really recommend watching Kokoro Connect because it is an outstanding creation, with the best character development I've ever seen.
Although one is a movie, and the other is a T.V. show, both of these are similar. Each anime has a little bit of something different, like the shooting star in Kimi no Na wa and the body switching in Kokoro Connect. They are both very enjoyable, and each has some romance.
I reckon 'Your Name' had a good strong premise with the body-swapping scenario to critically evaluate what it means to 'walk in another's footsteps'. Unfortunately the film quickly diverts from that to focus on a time-travelling scenario, which isn't where its strength is in my opinion. A show that better deals with deconstructing the perspectives of others is Kokoro Connect, using not just body swapping but other methods that betray an individual's projected persona.
-Both the movie and the series revolve around the body-switching of the main cast of characters, resulting in both problems and humour.
-Both the movie and the series are mainly driven by romance, whilst also showing some love for comedy and slice of life.
Both shows involve romance and body swapping dealing with the supernatural. Kokoro Connect imo goes more into character development vs Kimi no Na wa, but Kimi no Na wa artwork and overall beauty is way better than Kokoro Connect. Both shows are worth a watch.
After watching Kimi no Na Wa, I proceed to watch Koe no Katachi.
I was like "Wow. They're actually somewhat similar in comparison.".
Heartwarming, yet subtle, focusing on our main hero and heroine.
One about deafness and other switching bodies.
I think its "trouble communicating others with a disadvantage and you really have to know a person to understand their struggles" sort of thing.
Both movies are about a tragic love story. Other people besides the main 2 characters the romance centers around, are needed to help bring about the happy ending. They both have high quality animation and art.
I personally prefer Your Name( Kimi no na wa) a lot more and give it a 9/10, but Koe no Katachi is still a good movie and earns a 7/10.
Both are simply the best movie of their particular years. Both are Oscar worthy. Both share the main theme of high school romance. Kimi no Nawa is more fantasy-like while Koe no Katachi is more grounded in reality.
Both character is interest.So,girl difference of school or city or village the characters in pairs are different from the other anime.Whereas the voice of language is so polite and well mannered backsound a the soundtrack tt's just the soundtrack manage also very interesting though very remarkable.But that,the emotion of sadness, loneliness, separation, different and so on
They're both incredibly well written and stylized movies that will leave you wanting more. They both have very lovable main characters and such well conveyed emotions that you're left feeling a sense of dread that your life will never be as heart-wrenching as these movies. The love stories they tell are beautiful, hauntingly so, and so perfect overall. I quite enjoyed both movies
They are both movies on touching yet complex relationships and youth. Both center on the interactions of two main characters and how their ideas and morals evolve over time. Both have a twist towards the end that shocks viewers but resolves the major issues in the end.
These two are similar because they both express a relationship between a boy and a girl that isn't explicitly romantic, but still portray love and support that is really sweet and sad at times. The animation is similar in the sense they are both very high quality.
-Both anime involves a high school life.
-Both anime can make you cry.
-Both anime's main protagonists may/may have feelings with each other.
-Kimi no Na wa is somewhat supernatural, in a way that their souls is being switched to one another while Koe no Katachi they are not.
-Kimi no Na wa's main protagonists are very separate and far from each other, only their connection and communication with each other is writing something while in Koe no Katachi, the main protagonists are nearby and somewhat close.
-Koe no Katachi features the plot about bullying and redemption, guilt and repentance of the MC's actions in their childhood while in Kimi no Na wa it doesn't have the same plot as what is happening on Koe no Katachi.
-Kimi no Na wa is all about meeting each other and finding themselves while in Koe no Katachi is all about forgiveness and bringing back the brighter connections between the main protagonists. read more
Basically its love story too, in both movies there is kinda barrier between the two main characters that are supposed to fall in love with each other, but even tho they have to manage to overcome a lot of problems to be together and happy , they can do it. The animation style is similar too in my opinion and its really good artwork.
Similar story structure, except for the supernatural element. Purely from opinion here, but even though the story structure of Kimi no Na wa isn't as solid as Koe no Katachi, it is able to convey something that you can relate more to and easily understand, in comparison to the many hidden meanings and social problems presented in Koe no Katachi.
Instead of being reminded of Shinkai's other FAR more melancholic/sappy offerings, watching Your Name reminded me very much of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time in tone and direction.
They begin as something akin to 'supernatural sit-coms' where a supernatural element is inserted into the daily lives of high school kids and fun silliness ensues. They do later switch their emphasis to drama but there's never an overwhelming sense of despair.
There's also a spoilerific aspect that links Your Name with TGWLTT... but, yeah: SPOILERS.
Both movies have plot developments that are similar to each other in its sci-fi/mystical elements, to which I will not say more about in fear of spoiling the story. Due to the nature of short length of the movie, both works chose to focus more on the atmosphere and characters rather than making a seamless story.
Kimi no Na wa and Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo are both beautifully animated films, with lovable characters, interesting and fun stories, and both are thoroughly enjoyable. Both deal with themes of time and have sci-fi undertones, but are heavily centered around day-to-day life, youth, and of course, romance. Tears will be shed, laughter will be heard, and smiles will be seen during the course of watching both of these films, so please, if you have a spare couple of hours, I definitely recommend you to watch both of these films.
Won't say much in fear of spoiling either story so all you need to know is that they are quite similar, sweet yet funny romantic films that will tug on your heart strings and leave you contemplating life for months after you watch them.
Enjoy watching them for you'll never be able to watch them for the first time again.
Time Travel is thing that change past and future. To exchange the bodies will change their destinies.
The former begins to want when someone want to restart someone's life. The latter happens when someone felt something.
Really interesting if these elements are fused though, I wonder if actually possible?
Both are very pure movies I've ever seen. That is wonderful romance.
There is stellar story in TokiKake. This movie resonate with someone. It is thought-provoking about love.
Kimi no Na wa. has ultra-amazing beautiful art and animation literally. RADWIMPS music also superb. Anyways, these two points are good.
Makoto Konno and Mitsuha Miyamizu are attractive characters. Of course, Taki Tachibana, too.
Some people may feel opportunism. But Both don't looks like that from my point of view.
Anybody want to love someone. Anybody want to save someone. Both are similar to on that point.
"Someone dear to me. I don't want to forget. I shouldn't forget!" read more
Characters gain supernatural powers and struggle to use it's capabilities to achieve a greater good. The structure and pacing of both stories are very similar, but The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is not a romance, it is a coming of age story.
Both movies have an amazing plot; there's romance yet it's not ''too much''. You can easily get attached to the characters and you'll feel their emotions while they're going through certain incredible situations. They also both have an amazing art style.
Has a similar feeling of at first having a comedic, slice of life type tone with a wacky supernatural power changing the lives of our protagonists as they make use of it and adjust, but then later develops a sadder and more desperate tone. There is a beautiful but bittersweet romance, and a similar twist that occur in the later part of both movie. The directing style feels a bit similar too.
Same director, similar theme of heartbreak, similar use of train metaphor of life going in different paths but always going onward. Both are beautiful artistically and I hold them both as my two favorite Makoto Shinkai films.
Kimi no Na wa, your name, is simply put the better version of Byousoku 5 Centimeter. Both anime deal with the same themes and similar story ideas, only in my opinion your name handles them in a more interesting and original manner. The art style, animation and music are fantastic all around in both anime and are very similar too.
Both are bittersweet romance films from director Makoto Shinkai with amazing aesthetics, that carry themes of separation and heartbreak. Kimi no Na wa differs with supernatural elements while Byousoku 5 Centimeter focus more on the relationships between characters. If your a fan of Makoto Shinkai or romance films you'll be sure to like these works.
Well, they are both pretty similar by the fact that they are both Makoto Shinkai films, that have a similar take on romance (two mates on a journey to find each other) and similar character interactions. The animation sytle is very similar. The music also sound similar. They are both great movies. They were few differences thought.
Both directed by Shinkai Makoto, represents strong resemblance of a heartwarming story of how the main characters seek for a particular someone, a goal and a destination driven by their passion. Its also beautifully animated CoMix Wave films. Highly recommended!
Created both by Makoto Shinkai also same studios (CoMix Wave Films). Both movies have this distance concept, the protag are somewhat similar in their goals/ to reach someone they love. Both Masterpiece no doubt.
"5 cm per second. The speed at which cherry blossom petals fall." It looks like Makoto Shinkai has directed another little minimalist masterpiece. Bearing a distant resemblance to underground coming-of-age classics such as Kimi no Na wa, 5 cm interweaves three short stories seen from the viewpoints of different characters. Each story revolves around a specific time period in the protagonist's life: his last days at primary school, graduating from high school, his early life as an adult.
Fabulous OST first of all, but these are deserving of their high ratings. Both have a story that is very strong and interesting to follow, and by rewatching these you can see new things that you hadn't the first time. Both story's are incredibly well told with twists and turns, but the entire thing is covered in foreshadowing. Along with beautiful art style, I am really glad that they both receive credit for all of the amazing attributes of these anime
although the story is completey different, but the way they apply the realistic feeling of human are the same and u could feel how the character was feeling. And also after finishing kimi no na wa/ shigatsuwa kimi no uso, will have the same feeling, the emotions keep roling in your head and heart.
Are you longing for the bittersweet, sad feeling you got from Kimi no Na wa? Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is a marathon of sadness compared to Kimi no Na wa's more perfectly tuned length. Their plots are quite different, but both are set around teenagers and their personal relationships. As a emotional fix, this is the perfect followup to Kimi no Na wa.
Both Your Lie in April and Your Name have "your" in the title. Both of these titles follow mainly a male protagonist with a female supporting. These titles are easily able to pull tears out of you and keep you intrigued the entire way through.
-It all started with a comet
-Hint of romance
-Both are about a boy and a girl
-Alike story progression
-Both are drama/school
Also, in Kimi no Na wa, the two people switch bodies, on the other hand in Charlotte, Yuu could possess ones body.
Both are very dramatic and has a bit of fantasy and sci fi. Both also very calm and soothing to watch.
Both anime are telling about people who got 'abilities' like switching places (kimi no na wa) and other powers (charlotte).
Both anime involves comet.
In kimi no na wa, the comet is something that become the trigger of the whole story.
In charlotte, the comet named charlotte is the one that gives abilities to teenagers which is the main of the story.
Both animations have a comet as the origin of their story's conflict.
Both animations deal with adolescent life.
Both animations deal with the main characters' development as a person.
Both have Sci-Fi (in this case Time Travel) elements that is used as the solution to the protagonists' problems.
Both are intense love stories beyond its supernatural atmosphere.
Both are tear-jerkers and can literally get the best of your eyes.
Both have great plot especially in the league of drama. Although Kimi no Na wa has more humorous content on the beginning, both will stab your heart and pierce through your mind with it's tear-jerking story and ending.
if you like "Yukari Yukino (雪野 百香里)" it'll also appear on "Kimi no Na wa. (君の名は。)" because they are same Studios, and their story are both written by Makoto Shinkai that has strong romance and drama in their story, their also had same sound director and sad music.
- Same Studios
- Same Universe
- Same Genre
- Same Type
- Same Writer
Both are phenomenal movies that handle a beautiful romance that explores the themes of loss as well as stretches the bonds of a relationship through time and space. Haruhi is a bit more introspective and downtrodden, while Kimi no Na wa is a more upbeat movie.
Anime ini sangat saya rekomendasikan buat kalian yang suka dengan anime yang bergenre romance atau juga yang suka dengan anime yang membuat kita sedikit berfikir untuk bisa memahami jalan ceritanya. OK.. Mungkin itu saja yang dapat saya rekomendasikan buat kalian kali ini.. #Salam_Agent_Esa
I highly recommend this anime for you who like the anime genre of romance or also those who like the anime that makes us a bit of thinking to understand the story. OK .. Maybe it's just that I can recommend for you this time .. #Salam_Agent_Esa
Though the situation is different for both anime, both contain similar vibes that allows me to make a recommendation. Embracing the moment to make the present worthwhile, in a desperate attempt to not forget. This is perhaps the most spoiler free thing I can say regarding these two anime.
If you have watched one, you will most definitely enjoy the other.
(Tip for maximum feels: Watch s1 of ReLIFE)
Both of them deal with remembering the name of your soul mate that you forgot, one with ReLife program, the other with the main character which is in a state of oblivion about the name of the girl he love.
There is also a lot more of similitudes between these 2 animes but I can't say more because it would be spoiler for both so I will stop there.
The feeling of losing something. Something that you can't quite recall, but you know that it's somewhere out there. Something, or someone... both of these anime capture that emotion in a similar fashion, and if you want to continue the feels train, I would suggest watching this too.
While also similar to the main Steins;Gate series, Kimi no Na wa and the Steins;Gate film are even more similar in that they carry many of the same compelling thematic elements. They both tackle the core theme of longing, longing for something or someone but not being quite sure of what it is or why you'd want it. They both also deal with the loss of important memories and how that can affect people who don't appear to have similar experiences. At the heart of each film is a journey, one that demands the protagonist's resolve until they figure out what – or who – is making them feel so empty and unfulfilled. read more
-Both are about the male protagonist trying to save the heroine from the clutches of the opposing force
-Both have a similar time travel element to them
-Both have characters that are likeable when you're watching, but forgettable, and most likely within a week, if you didn't enjoy the show, you won't remember their names
Both stories have a male protagonist wanting to change the present using time travel and modifying the past.
Both have several emotional scenes that connect with the viewer, trapping mostly people with similar experiences.
Both just dig the necessary in the characters, avoiding fillers.
Both are enjoyable, play with your feelings and emotions while developing the story but at the end you don't get a deep message or learning.
The OP of both share a similar technique and have a hidden purpose (not saying more, find it by yourself)
These films showcase the development of a friendship and partnership between two teenagers in various dystopian worlds, with circumstances forcing both protagonists to empathise with one another through 'stepping into each others shoes'. Both make the viewer question life and try to find the meaning behind the plot, providing a throughly entertaining watch.
Tragedy can bring forth hope in its own way. These two animes in particular show that in their own way.
Tokyo Magnitude shows how our main protagonist lives her life after the earthquake that struck Japan and caused the people to have many losses. While Kimi no Na wa shows our two main characters who wind up in great confusion when living someone else's life and also how they were able to break out of the confusion.
These events bring about a huge change in these characters' lives. Changes that one, the viewer or character, will not expect.
Both have fantastic soundtrack and beautiful backgrounds, visual effects. Both are related to some kinds of 'dream'. Both are stories related to comets (or asteroid). and a man tries to save the woman he loves.
They are directed by Makoto Shinkai
They talk about a distant relationship and between them there's a way they can talk
but always with time between them.
I the two movies there are references about the sky world, the stars, and the different worlds.
Like Shinkai's works, Violet Evergarden also has hyper-realistic animation,
beautiful attention to detail, and the lighting is just gorgeous.
Although their plots and views are different, they share the same emotional,
tear-jerking, yet heartwarming style of storytelling that leaves the viewer satisfied yet yearning for more.
Things that smiliar? Supernatural things that only happen to two people and make them closer.
Midori no Hibi is more silly (wtf, my right hand become a girl?) and old anime (clearly kimi no na wa is better), but you can still enjoy it especially if you already watch Kimi no Na wa and you can't forget about the movie and keep bugging you all the time and feel hopeless...
The thing that Midori no Hibi do better is how the anime ends. Shinkai definetly still could learn something from Midori no Hibi
great romance with a slight supernatural feel; though the supernatural theme does not have quite the explanation, but that's the charm of the animez. so if u loved the anime "Kimi no Na wa", i think u will also love "Midori no Hibi".
I recommend this movie, I mean there's no body swapping in this movie but it does the same effect to your heart as much as Kimi no Na wa does, the art and love story is similar in predicaments because someone does die in it also so it is similar in ways. But i do highly recommend this movie to people who loved the touchy feely types of anime movies like Kimi no Na wa.
Both are movies (yep.)
Both are the similar type of romance, a heartwarming and bittersweet romance with a lot of surprises.
Both involves a couple who are at lost of each other. Body swapping in Kimi no Na wa & robotic human in Hal.
Both females are the similar type and both are dearly connected to the male protagonists.
Both involves life, death, time and memories.
DIFFERENCE : Hal is more calm oriented than Kimi no Nawa. Hal is also more realistic and possible. Kimi no Nawa is more funny and interesting. Kimi no Nawa is like making the impossible possible while Hal is turning the possible upside down.
Ano Hana isn't about body-swapping like Kimi no Na wa. But what significantly makes them similar is the way the shows are extremely emotional. They both shock us with sad twists. The two shows also have similar background musics that trigger your sense of sympathy. They both also deal with superstitions involved around the main female characters. If you want to cry again, I'd strongly recommend this anime.
(Plus, they have the same character designer).
Easily two of the most heartfelt stories to be released in the past decade. With honest characterization and light fantasy/sci-fi elements, these stories are able to tell extremely deep, memorable, and emotional experiences that few other films can rival.
The piece about "going back in time" and trying to save someone really reminds me of Orange. There is a similarity in the feeling of hoping that things will turn out the way you wished and the tuck in the heart while you wait for the ending.
The artstyle are very similar with the surrealistic drawings that draws you into the scene; very detailed. The stories deal with a normal world and another vaguely explained world. The way everything works is not put in front of you and requires you to activate your brain and think things through; maybe even doing research. The stories are very powerful and both activate emotions very easily. The biggest difference is how Clannad takes the emotions very far and toys with your heart, while Kimi no na Wa takes simple steps to trigger a lesser level of sadness.
Love stories, abnormal events. Two people who help each other. If you liked Kimi no Na Wa, you will definitely like Kokosake too (viseversa too). You will absolutely feel good in the same way after watching it, or emotional.
They essentially have the same plot line except with different circumstances, characters and genre. To be honest, both these stories could potentially be in the same universe as some sort of fan theory and I wouldn't be that surprised.
Character Wise they are ideal to the setting of both. The main Character(s) are perpetuated to a new part of themselves. The people around them curve to the difference and find themselves in situations of dire danger were the protagonists make mistakes.
A romantic story of two individuals who constantly miss each other and can't accomplish a regular relationship. It's about first unknown and awkward feelings. It's also shown from two respective perspectives (boy's and girl's). Two heart-warming experiences.
Both have much of the story taking place in the mountainous regions of Japan west of Tokyo (Kimi no Na Wa in Gifu prefecture, Summer Wars in the neighboring Nagano prefecture). In both stories we see the contrast between the modern and the traditional, both have an older woman who best personifies the traditional aspect, and in both the main male protagonist is used to life in the city and finds himself trying to bluff his way through being in this more rural, traditional setting (though the circumstances are quite different). There is also a notable similarity in the endings.
Although Kimi no Na wa has a key supernatural element to it, and Tamako Love Story doesn't, both share a similar puppy love and beautiful art styles. Both give you good vibes about love, friendship and just life in general.
So, I heard you like Makoto Shinkai?
She and Her Cat is Shinkai's first work and contains several of his visual direction as a director and his narrating prowess as a writer. It is worth checking out to see how much he has grown to form his style back when he was animating his works all by himself.
If you experienced memorable emotions that you just can't put into words while watching either Kimi no Na wa or Clannad/Clannad: After Story, then you most likely will feel the same or very similarly with the other. If you are one to enjoy sentimental reactions, then you will love either of these.
Both are beautifully animated and heartwarming films that have similar imagery of shooting stars and several plot simiarities, such as time-slip elemtns and the main girl cutting her hair short. Sophie and Mitsuha feel a little similar to me, as they are both very strong young women but are not quite happy with themselves and the lives they lead.
Has a simular warm feeling to it and there are some simular thems like:
- Living in the city vs living on the country side.
- Finding out where you belong and what to do with your life.
- Boy and girl in love while not seeing each other.
Both are concerned with the issues of globalization and the youth generation of japan. Whilst your name covers youth/grey generation, 3/11 disaster, cultural heritage/globalization, male/female, and urban/ rural. Terror in Resonance is mainly about the american big daddy and what terrorism could mean for japan.
Both had similar aspects of finding their true love with a twist by using Time as their primary obstacle.
Both are Impacting and gave a very deep meaning.
The feels chart do not over shadow each other, they're equally beautiful.
I don't know why people didn't thought about Millennium Actress when people watched Kimi no na wa, that's practically a more modernized version of it.
They both involve a girl who is neither dead or alive and a boy who tries to rescue her. Both have supernatural means to influence the past or future. Both have a strong city aesthetic. Shigofumi is more grim but both have a happy ending. Shigofumi focuses more on grim happenings such as the main conflict in Kimi no Na wa rather than romance. This will probably hook you after the first episode if you enjoyed Kimi no Na wa.
Shigofumi on the surface looks very dated compared to Kimi no Na wa. Don't be fooled; both are beautiful (obviously Kimi no Na wa had a bigger budget). It holds up very well in 2016. read more
- Time travel.
- Girl, meets boy!
- Contemporary setting.
- Low fantasy. Supernatural household.
- Pretty visuals with lots of gloss and shininess, full of aqua, sky blue and green
With more to come
- Main character meet someone from outside the area they live (in Kimi no Na Wa from the city or countryside / in Taifuu no Noruda from another planet).
- Supernatural elements.
- Beautiful artwork.
[Spoiler for Kimi no Nawa below]
- Both anime involve a natural disaster.
- The main characters try to save everyone from the disaster (in their own way).
- Taifuu no Noruda has a shorter duration.
- Taifuu no Noruda's story is simple, but still has a meaning. Kimi no Na Wa is more complex which makes it more interesting.
- Kimi no Na Wa has romance, while Taifuu no Noruda more into bromance.
-While Golden time has a lot more comedy you can't notice how similar the drama aspects are on both. Golden time has a lot more romance than Kimi no Na wa and i'll recommend it if you're looking for something more romantic.
-Without spoiling too much, the last couple of episodes of Golden Time have a lot in common with Kimi no Na wa's ending.
-If you liked one i'm sure you'll like the other.
